Kia has launched some immaculate products in the India lineup. It is on the ball when it comes to features, powertrain options, and interior quality. It has cars like the Seltos, Carens, and Sonet which have a stronghold in their segment. Today we are talking about its compact SUV, the Sonet, which is one of the most loaded cars on sale. It is available in multiple variants that often confuse buyers in choosing the right variant. So, we have simplified it for you and today we discuss the best variant of the Kia Sonet. Let’s begin.
NOTE – By best we mean the one that offers the most value-for-money.
Kia Sonet HTX – Design
The Sonet HTX is similar in terms of external features to the top model. It is fairly equipped and you certainly don’t feel it is a lower variant from any angle. It gets LED headlamps and taillamps along with projector foglamps. You also get a sunroof and turn indicators on the IRVMs. Other factors include dual-tone roof rails, chrome door handles, rear diffuser, and more. However, it lacks some features compared to the top model which are sporty red bits, rear wiper, chrome window line, etc.
Kia Sonet HTX – Interior Design & Features
The Sonet HTX variant gets a dual-tone interior layout. Features like a sunroof, cruise control, six-speaker audio system, 8-inch touchscreen, smartphone connectivity, remote engine start, auto folding IRVMs, etc are available in the variant. On the safety front, it gets dual airbags, ABS with EBD, speed-sensing door locks, and more. Overall, this variant is adequately equipped for its pricing and offers a generous amount of tech.
Kia Sonet is available in three engine options. However, if you are opting for the HTX variant, you could only get it in two engine options. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and the 1.5-diesel. What about the gearbox? You can get the diesel variant with either a 6-speed manual or a torque converter AT. Moving on to the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, your options are a DCT automatic and the iMT semi-automatic.
The Sonet HTX starts at Rs 12.90 lakh (on-road, Mumbai) for the 1.0-litre iMT, whereas it goes upto Rs 14.61 lakh (on-road, Mumbai) for the diesel AT.
So should you buy it?
